Dear Experts, I could not start Veeam. It said that "SQL server is not available". We checked and started all of SQL and Veeam services but it did not help.

Can you please help? many thanks!

HI all (Andrew), I was looking for a way to migrate a server from one ESXi server to another incrementally, I think.  

So I have a server that is like 2 T on a VMware server, I want to image it over, then be able to migrate it to another VMWare server, then be able to just migrate the changes over.  

Like if it's going to take a long time I can do it, then when we have a small window get people off the server, then zap over the changed files, shut off the old server boot up the new one and done.

I was trying to figure it out in Veeam, but got stuck.

Thanks all.

We currently use Veeam and Veeam Copy Jobs to an Exagrid de-duplicating appliance.  Exagrid automatically sync's our data center backups to our remote office.  To supplement that, and to protect against a ransomware attack, we want cloud air-gapped backups.  We presently use Veeam copy jobs to iLand for that purpose but it's not going well.

We are about to demo CommVault but I figured before doing so, maybe I should take a step back and ask for thoughts on:

CommVault vs. Zert0

The ONLY thing I like about Veeam copy jobs to a cloud provider is the provider's "insider protection" which basically is a cloud based "recycle bin" which even a malicious admin can't touch.

We don't enjoy the overly complex nature of hundreds of  Veeam backup jobs and copy jobs.  It's a nightmare to monitor and maintain.

CommVault sounds much simpler.

I don't know anything about Zert0 other than it offers granular restores to the minute which could be super handy during a ransomware attack (assuming they don't successfully attack our backups).

I suppose the air-gapped-ness depends on the destination provider for both CommVault and Zert0.

Do these solutions typically rely on things like Amazon's Object Lock / Compliance Mode / WORM (write-once-read-many)?

A big requirement is MFA in order to delete backup containers; my nightmare scenario is my laptop getting hijacked and/or my admin credentials getting compromised and ransomware hacker attacking my cloud backups too !!!

Hi

I have installed a QNAP TS-1283XU-RP server which backs up our virtual server using VEEAM and File servers using backup assist software.

This Qnap server is located on one of the COMS cabinet-1 that is away from the server room.

The switch in the Coms cabinet  is connected through a fibre optics cable connection  to the core switch in the server room.
The edge switch is 100/1 Gig switch

The Qnap server has 4x1GbE Lan ports . At the moment only one LAN port from the Qnap is connected  to the switch and on this LAN card gui network speed says 1Gbps.

If I connect another LAN port of the Qnap to the switch , will the data transfer speed increase ?

Please suggest and any help will be great
Thanks

Hi

I have purchased a Qnap server QNAP TS-1283XU-RP 12 Bay  with 96TB (12 x 8TB Seagate EXOS enterprise class SATA HDD 7200RPM)

We are using VMware  and I would like to use this for onsite backup, for backing up our Virtual servers using Veeam backup and backing up user files using BackupAssist software with  this Qnap server as a backup target.

Please let me know the Raid type that i need to set up.
On this Qnap server , It gives me the Raid option of Raid5, Raid 6, Raid10

For Raid 5 With 1 hotspare, it gives a usable space of 72TB
For Raid 6 With 1 hotspare, it gives a usable space of 65TB

I dont want to go for Raid 10  and it ask for 2 spare and the usable space is only  36TB

I am not very keen on the performance of the qnap and it is only for the Veeam Back up target and File server Backup target.

Please suggest , the suitable Raid ( RAID5 or RAID6) that i can set up and your help much appreciated.

Thanks

if anyone has any experience with Veeam backup, I am trying to determine between SQL Server native backup feature and Veeam what is actually backing up the databases. For example does Veeam remove the need to setup a schedule of backups using SQL Server backup features, or typically do the two work together.e .g you configure SQL Server to backup the databases to a local drive, and then configure a Veeam backup to pickup the SQL backups along with any other data in that job?

I am trying to determine if someone says we backup our SQL Servers using Veeam, what exactly do they mean/or what exactly is Veeams role in the process.

I have a PDC running windows server 2016 on a VMware environment using Veeam Backup & Recovery. I was hit with they RYUK ransomware virus. I have shutdown all my VMs and disconnected all my computers on the network but one that is clean, I have restored my PDC from a good backup when it was working. However after restore windows boots in safe mode and AD is not accessible. I found a Veeam forum to run "bcdedit /deletevalue safeboot" and reboot into normal mode but I still cannot access Active Directory, says that domain could not be found.
How do I get my PDC back up after restore?

Hi all and happy Sysadmin Day!

I have a hyper-v 2012 R2 host. I'm backing up one of the VMs and noticed that Veeam is only backing up the C: VHD disk, it's not backing up the other VHD disk which is H:
what could I look at to determine why it's not backing up the 2nd VHD disk on this VM?

We have a production site and a DR site.

We have Veeam installed on the production site. Among others, Veeam replicates the backups and the virtual machines to the DR site.

As part of the replication jobs, I would like to know if we can replicate the Veeam backup server to the DR site and if there is any best practices that must be followed for such scenario.

I need to find a way to run a report on Veeam Backups for a restore that may have been done.
Is there a way to do this for say a particular server and for a specific date?
If so, how do I get these results?
We are running Veeam 9.5 4

Hello All,

I would like to understand how many servers can be backed up with below licenses.

Veeam Backup Essentials Enterprise Plus 2 socket bundle

* 1 x VM = 1 x agent ?

* If not backing up the whole VM, agent can be used to backup the files from server ?

Thanks

Planning on switching out our backup software from StorageCraft to Veeam.

Question on data centers. SC provides their own datacenter and Veeam doesn't. We already have other services configured with Amazon S3 so it's likely we'll use their services and replicate backups here. Anyone have any other recommendations or data centers they recommend?

Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to use Veam Backup and restore to backup from an ESXi server and restore to a Hyper-V system.

Thanks all.

We use Veeam BU and Replication at two sites.  At site A, Veeam is on a physical machine and our backup storage is physically connected to that physical machine so adding storage to hold backups and replicas is simple.

At site B, there are two VMware hosts.  Veeam is running as a VM on one of those hosts.  

Each host has 20+TB of storage and I'm trying to add it to Veeam to hold backups and replicas and it's giving me some grief.  

Veeam is running on host 200, but the only way I have found to add storage for Veeam to use is to add a virtual hard drive to the Veeam server and then map to it.  I just want to make sure I'm dealing with this storage in the correct way.

Can anyone offer any suggestion?

Thanks

Is there a way with Veeam backup version 9.5 to do a restore from like a time frame range?
ex: Sept - Dec for a certain file
I don't see anyway to do that just wondering if it is possible or not and if so, how can I set that up?

If I unregister a VM from one Host, and then RE-register it to a completey different host, does it receive a new GUID? or whatever and potentially cause issues with Veeam backup of the VM for example?

The reason why I ask is because I am tasked with migrating VM's this way since there is no absolutely no other option available and I need to get certain VM's off of one host and onto another.  My only concern is perhaps the GUID of the VM or its ID will change and cause issues with Veeam backup.  Is this a valid presumption?

I want to use the Veeam VUM to upgrade all of the vms Hardware to the latest version since we just upgrade our VM host from 5.5 to 6.5
If I select the vm hardware from the baseline, will it shut down the vms one at a time to upgrade the hardware and then will it power them back on once complete?
